Tasting

Colour : intense garnet red flecked with bright purplish tints.
Nose : pronounced wild berry (raspberries, blackberries, blackcurrants) and Morello cherry notes.
Mouth : the red fruit, with the Morello cherry notes, makes this a rich, delectable wine on entry to the palate, and is followed by supple, silky tannins creating lovely length.

Sommelier tips

Recommended food pairing:
camargue-style Beef Gardiane.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C.

Vintage 2017

Grape variety

Blend of Syrah, Grenache and Marselan.

Soil

After full destemming, the grapes go into concrete tanks where each varietal is vinified separately
to bring out the very best of each. Alcoholic fermentation is brought on by indigenous yeasts and is followed by regular pumping over and rack and return operations. Each tank is then run off with a separation of the free-run and press juices. Final blending takes place once malolactic fermentation is completed.

Harvest

The harvesting takes place in the early hours of the morning thus avoiding the heat of the day and preserving the freshness of the grapes.
